When the jack-o-lantern gets saggy skin, simply stop at one of these locations and pop it in a bin! Pumpkin recycling takes over the city from Oct. 26 through Nov. 6.
Las Vegas Livestock will provide collection bins for the public to recycle their pumpkins free of charge. These tasty treats will be fed to pigs and chickens being raised near Apex, North of the Las Vegas Valley.
